Wait, didn't I hear this joke on The Simpsons?
You know what? I lied when I said bees were the only protagonists in Animal Crossing. I forgot about the tarantulas and scorpions. They stare you down before they decide to charge at you and f**k up your s**t. Heck, if they bite or sting you, you actually pass out and reawaken inexplicably in front of your house. Kinda like what happens with Wall Masters. I guess it's a Nintendo thing.
I'm still more scared of bees though. You run into them a lot more and they leave your face horribly mutilated. They must be stopped.
